NO EXCUSE GUIDE TO SUCCESS No Matter What Your Boss - or Life - Throws at You Jim "Mr Energy" Smith, Jr.

THE NO EXCUSE GUIDE TO SUCCESS shows you how to abandon this unworkable routine and stop the destructive pattern of making excuses and blaming others —to stop whining and start winning.
THE NO EXCUSE GUIDE TO SUCCESS gives you the tools and techniques you need to:
· Make life-altering changes in how you approach your career and your life · Stop blaming others and start believing in yourself · Own your choices and break down self-created barriers to success · Embrace uncertainty and stop being afraid to win

NOW WE'RE COPING Grasping the Nettles of Life Chris Sangster
This book combines spiritually-based stances with real-life and business-based experiences, considering a wide range of techniques, applications and philosophies. It is based on the belief that a focus on the present or now, with a cross-relationship to positive future strategy planning where relevant, helps the individual establish and progress coping abilities.
the book aims to awaken and empower the reader to take personal control of his/her situations in life by experimenting with the variety of stances presented. Some will undoubtedly work better than others for each individual – with some effort, a personal strategy will evolve for each engaged reader.
NOW WE'RE COPING encompasses health, family, work and personal issues, in the belief that there is often a holistic link merging the various causes and effects together – with a selected coping strategy often working best where all related aspects have been addressed. Many of the chapters are standalone, dealing with subject areas such as living in the now, sound in healing, communicating positively and coping with time constraints, which make the book equally appropriate for in-depth reading and referencing specific subject areas.
The later chapters focus the reader, through a range of examples and exercises, onto evolving their own personal self-help strategies, either generally or to meet specific challenges.
